The Reasons Why The Full Moon Is Responsible For InsomniaIn popular culture, the Full Moon is held responsible for a number of strange behaviors; from spikes in crime, to bouts of madness and mood swings. As humans, we are sensitive entities and this is why the cycles have such a huge impact on us, including troubling sleeping. Swiss researchers have in fact recently confirmed that the Full Moon is one of the root causes of insomnia and have proved that it has an effect on the quality of our rest. Susan Taylor reveals more information on this revelation!
What is the link between the Full Moon and insomnia?
If you've been pointing the finger at too much screen time before bed, you can now turn your attention to the Full Moon. Scientists agree that the most common explanation for insomnia is that our internal biological clock is linked to the phases of the Moon.
Indeed, many of us find that it takes us longer to get to sleep on these evenings and that the quality of our sleep is often inferior to other nights. This is due to a diminution of melatonin, the hormone that helps you sleep. If this is your case, scientists call it being ‘lunar rhythmic’ and it means our bodies function around the phases of the moon.

The Full Moon and astrology
For Susan Taylor, there is a strong link between insomnia and the Full Moon. According to our specialists, the stars are greatly affected by this cycle. It is often a time when people will reveal something or suddenly see the light, and this is because it encourages impulsivity and more instinctive feelings... These emotions are reflected during the nighttime and cause for a restless sleep.
Are you sensitive to this cycle?
Certain people are more sensitive than others to the effects of this phase, in the same way that some people are more receptive to electromagnetic waves (Wi-Fi, telephone etc.). In order to determine if you’re more sensitive to it, keep a sleep diary close to your bed, so you can track your sleep patterns. This will help you determine whether you are impacted by the energies.
Things to note and keep track of:
- The time you fall asleep
- The duration of your sleep
- The feelings you have in your dreams: uneasy, tired, relaxed…
- The nature of your dreams; scary, stressful, loved up… (this can be an excellent indicator)
How to sleep better during the Full Moon phase
As you probably know, if you want to beat insomnia, leading a healthy lifestyle is essential! Here are some steps to a restful night.
- On the food side, absolutely avoid sugars. Also, try to avoid gluten, which disturbs digestion.
- Place blackout curtains in all rooms to prevent the brightness from disturbing your sleep.
- Keep your room below 21 °C.
- Set a digital curfew. The blue light from the screens inhibits the production of melatonin.
- Only go to bed when you are sleepy.
